First Day at Homeschool Umbrella School, Reflections | Homeschooling Hig...
Dear Mocha Family,
I know a homeschool mom who stopped considering herself a homeschooler when she sent her kids to Towle Institute for high school. I wonder if her perspective is one of the reasons Towle is so clear that classes meeting one day a week, offering instruction for one hour per subject, as opposed to students receiving multiple hours over the course of a week, can't replace our responsibility as homeschooling parents to be the primary teachers of our children.
I am so excited for the support and structure I am gaining from Towle, and share in detail (above video) some of the benefits we are already enjoying. I am struck by how much my needs have changed over the years, in that I never would have imagined myself appreciating this much structure and oversight. Yet in this season and with this particular child, I am so happy to have access to such a situation.
Change is exciting.
